As Editor Christopher Schwarz and I were leaving to get coffee at lunchtime today, a big panel truck pulled up to our loading dock , so we hightailed it to Chris’s car. But Senior Editor Glen Huey has both our mobile numbers, so there was no escaping the unloading duties (to be fair, I didn’t actually do any unloading; someone had to take pictures after all!).
In the truck were two huge crates from Lie-Nielsen , the first of multiple shipments for the upcoming Lie-Nielsen Toolworks’ Travelin’ Hand Tool Event, May 16 and 17 in our Cincinnati shop.
Admission is free. Hours are noon-6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.
Experts from Lie-Nielsen will be on hand to demonstrate their tools. We’ll be here to give shop tours and apologize for dangling modifiers. Members of the Society of American Period Furniture Makers (SAPFM) will be giving hand tool demos (click here for the demo schedule). And we’ll be joined by John Economaki of Bridge City Tools, Ron Hock of Hock Tools, Kevin Drake of Glen-Drake Tool Works, Ron Brese of Brese Planes, Bob Zajicek of Czeck Edge Hand Tool and Jameel Abraham of Benchcrafted.
So make plans to join us on either or both days at 4700 E. Galbraith Road, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45236 (look for the F&W Publications sign out front…and the tool makers and users in the parking lot). And here’s a link to a Google map of our location.
And the delivery fellow? We told him there were more crates to come. As he was leaving, he mentioned that a shipping competitor has great customer service. I believe there may be some heavy metal in those crates.
